TD94: Understanding The New Hours-Of-Service (HOS) Rules

Unless you’ve just beamed in from another planet (or you’re a non-trucker), you’re probably aware of the new Hours-of-Service rules that are looming. But do you understand them fully? From some of the feedback I’ve been getting on Twitter and the blog, I’d say there’s still some confusion out there. The Bible flat-out says that […]

TD78: A Trucker’s Thanksgiving

Well, it’s that time of year again. It’s time to slap-fight your siblings for the drumstick and have spoon duels over the last dollop of Cool Whip, because we all know pumpkin pie just ain’t right until you can’t see the plate beneath the pie. More importantly though, it’s time to look around us and […]

TD67: The Road To Smutville

Driving a truck nowadays is almost like having a subscription to Playboy. Well, I guess the billboards only show portions of the actual goods, so maybe it’s closer to Maxim. Any way you look at it though, today’s truck driver has waaaaay too many loads going to Smutville. Now I know what some of you […]

TD61: E-logs: My First Impression

Despite the fact that I’ve been driving for 13 years, I made a bonehead rookie mistake yesterday. It was especially unfortunate since it probably would have been covered if it didn’t coincide with my first day running with e-logs. But first… what are e-logs? E-logs are electronic logs. For more details, you may want to […]

TD60: Truckers vs. Cops vs. DOT vs. Carriers

There is a constant unseen battle going on in the trucking industry. It’s like the movie “Alien vs. Predator,” only with two more factions that rear back their ugly heads and roar. Perhaps someone should make a massive online video game about it. It could be called Truckers vs. Cops vs. DOT vs. Carriers. I’d […]

TD59: A Trucker’s Home

I’m 42 years old and The Evil Overlord has been 29 for several years now. We live with her parents. How pathetic is that? Well, according to many of the truckers I’ve spoken with, it’s not pathetic at all. Well, at least it’s not that uncommon anyway. I was reminded of this yesterday when my company asked […]

TD56: Funkin’ Truckin’

If you’re here looking for a happy-go-lucky attitude, perhaps you should see if Elmo has started writing a blog over at Sesame Street. As long as he’s not doing an audio blog, you should be able to visit without causing any permanent hearing damage. What you’re going to get here is what I call a […]

TD51: Sucking It Up

@WilsonHines is a guy I met on Twitter a while back. I’ve discovered that when it comes to Wilson, I’m clearly breaking the 10th commandment. That’s the one that says: Thou shall not covet. Wilson and I have similar plans for our lives. He wants to get out of trucking and get a degree. I […]

TD50: It’s My Birthday, So Fork It Over

It’s August 19th, which makes it an extra-special day. Forty-two years ago today, I got my first spanking. Forty-two years later, I still enjoy a good spanking, providing that it’s The Evil Overlord with the riding crop and the ball gag, not some creepy male doctor. Unfortunately, Google Maps is telling me that home and […]
